Build better outcomes with bricks!

The LEGO Serious Play method supports open communication, inhibits unproductive hierarchies and generates creativity. It’s a great teambuilding activity which goes beyond group bonding to focus on a shared future vision and has been used by hundreds of large and small organisations to enhance engagement, facilitate communication, and mediate strategic change.

How does it work?

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is an open-source facilitation process developed by the LEGO group used in organisations from the NHS to NASA. The process applies sophisticated theories of learning to motivate and engage. But mostly it involves playing with LEGO bricks! All the hard work of thinking and planning is in the hands of your facilitator.

A facilitator will mobilise your existing knowledge and capabilities through model building, using the methodology to support your requirements. This could be building trust, learning, strategic planning or innovation. There’s a wide range of possibilities. More detail on the method is provided by LEGO here.
